Passion and purpose. Have you found yours yet?
I’ll admit that it took me what seemed like forever to figure mine out and when I thought I had I had determined what my path in life should be, things changed and that left me questioning lots of things. I had to figure it out or else, I’d just be settling and getting by, just as I had seen other people do. They were miserable and I did not want to end up like them. I could not end up like them!
And I share this with you because, you might be at that point right now, trying to figure out how you can live a fulfilled, happy and content life so I’m sharing with you the same information that I share with my private coaching clients and that I have personally done in my own life.
Here are my tips to help you find you find your purpose and passion in life.
Get real with yourself.
Okay, so journaling might be something you do. It might be something you dread. However, the only person that can tell you what your life should look like is YOU!
I encourage my clients to get real with themselves. That means, sitting down and writing (or even grabbing their computer) and describing what they envision their life to look like.
What do you like to do and what comes naturally?
What things would you need to do to get better at your natural talents?
For me, what I liked to do and what came naturally was helping others. So, it was no surprise that I joined a network marketing company and decided to become a health coach and help others in their own fitness journey. That’s since evolved into more than just physical healthy but one’s whole being.
To get better at helping others, I took coaching courses and achieved certifications in various things like accountability coaching, facebook group coaching, health coaching, and more. Everything that I learned allows me to be a better coach for you!
What’s your heart telling you?
What brings you the greatest joy? Take a look back and think about it.
Okay, so remember earlier when I said that the only person that can tell you what your life should look like is you? Well, it’s true.
Inside of you, you have everything you need to determine that. Your GPS or your inner guidance system is what is going to help you do that. Your happiness matters so if something feels right, do it. If it doesn’t, don’t. Life is short. Do what makes your heart happy.
Get clear on what you want to do.
You’ve been journaling and working on what it is you’re passionate about.
Are these feelings true?
Or, are they what someone else wants for you?
Be sure that what you’re about ready to do, is what YOU want. The more clear about it you are, the more chances of it showing up in your life.
Start setting goals.
Once you’ve determined what you want to do, getting there is the next step.
Are you going to relocate somewhere else?
Start setting goals for yourself. You can read an article on how to do that over here on this blog post.
As you continue to live your life, you may feel that your passion and purpose changes. Its okay if it does because we grow and become different people as we age. Our experiences help shape our opinions, interests and all of the other things that make us up.
